The core could be on the brink of breaking up; Klay Thompson is no guarantee to be re-signed

Once the Golden State Warriors officially re-signed Draymond Green, all the attention naturally shifted toward finding a path to locking up Klay Thompson for the foreseeable future. However, there hasn't been much progress on a deal. And according to some recent reporting, it's something that is beginning to wear on the mind of Thompson. Considering how much Thompson is struggling to start the season, there could be some truth to this reporting.

Here's the problem that the Warriors could run into over the next few weeks. If they continue to hover around mediocrity in the Western Conference, there's really no sense in locking up Thompson for the huge deal that he's likely going to be seeking. In fact, if the Warriors continue to struggle this season, it would only make more sense for Golden State to move on one way or another.

For the first time in a long time, there's a very real chance the Warriors' core is about to break up. Quite frankly, the evidence is beginning to mount on how it may be the best course of action for the team moving forward.
